Perhaps we need to add "prairie-style" or some such phrase to our American golf vernacular. Places like Erin Hills, Suttons Bay (SD), etc., have some elements of links to them, but aren't true links. They use the contours of the prairie, formed by glaciers and rivers, and the native grasses of the area.

I agree with your point of view. Was fortunate to play Portmarnock Links Course in Ireland this past May. Nothing like it here in the U.S. compares... except perhaps the four courses you mention. I live on Cape Cod and will check out the Highlands in Truro before the season ends. Thanks for the tip.

I played Portmarnock last year and (like you), loved it. Another fine old links course is on England's eastern coast: Royal West Norfolk in Brancaster. Also do yourself a favor sometime and go to Wales to play courses like Pennard, Tenby and Royal Porthcawl.
